The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 24 – Keywords

the-mando-method-podcast-4x4-72

Keywords. They’re more important than you think for a writer. The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda delve deeper into their own feelings about keywords and what positive and negative things they’re doing to help/hinder their own usage of them. 

Marketing Morsels with Erin Al-Mehairi is still on hiatus while she decides if she wants to live in Alaska and learn how to build an ice castle or return to sunny Ohio and eat at chain restaurants like a human being again.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 23 – Pitches

the-mando-method-podcast-4x4-72

Pitching to publishers. Nerve-wracking. Vomit-inducing. Something every author who wants to work for a publisher might need to do at some point. 

The Mando Method co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda give their own thoughts on the pitching process as well as offer unsolicited advice on what authors should do if they’re about to pitch a book to a publisher. 

Then, Erin Al-Mehairi and her Marketing Morsels segment offers hidden highlights from her elopement with her Yeti boyfriend, who couldn’t secure a visa in time to  move to snowy Ohio and live happily ever after. Or maybe there is none of this segment this week.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 22 – Cover Art

the-mando-method-podcast-4x4-72

Face it: We all judge a book by its cover. Having the best possible representation of your work is the first step to successful sales. Why take the chance on having a bad first impression?

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda break down their own experiences with cover art and what they see as the good, the bad and the ugly in the publishing industry. 

Erin Al-Mehairi and Marketing Morsels promises to be back soon… just as soon as she can get the proper visa for her new Yeti boyfriend and a razor sharp enough to shave him.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 21 – Back Matter

the-mando-method-podcast-4x4-72

Not to be confused with black matter in space, back matter on books is what The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda are talking about this episode. Maybe when they get their honorary doctorates from NASA they’ll talk about black matter and cool space stuff.

For now they give insight on what should go at the back of your book in ebook and print and how to keep the reader reading what you want them to read, which is more of your books. 

Erin Al-Mehairi couldn’t be with us again, as the bounty on the Yeti she was hunting went up a few thousand bucks. We understand. Hope you catch him!

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 20 – Audiobooks

the-mando-method-podcast-4x4-72

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda have both delved into putting their work on audiobook. Is it a viable option? A massive waste of time? A nefarious scheme hatched by an alien race? They meander in and out of talking about audiobooks as well as stuff they really shouldn’t be talking about. 

Marketing Morsels host Erin Al-Mehairi is still not back from her yachting around the world in 80 minutes excursion, but as soon as she’s able she’ll bring this show back to a level of professionalism sorely lacking.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 19 – Book Reviews

the-mando-method-podcast-4x4-72

Book Reviews

Authors need them to survive. They read every review they get. They obsess over them. They want to know if they’re really as important as people make them out to be. Co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda have no clue, but they still manage to talk for quite awhile on the subject in this week’s The Mando Method Podcast

Marketing Morsels host Erin Al-Mehairi had to take a break this week because of a secret mission she was on that involved cupcakes and an attic fan. We can’t say anything more than that
